    I understand no full size spare. I even understand no mini-spare, but no tire inflator/repair kit? And this for a car without run flat tires? It sounds like Tesla sells a kit, but do they include the kit in any of their cars? Do buyers in some states or parts of the country get the kits at no charge?

    Some States or jurisdictions require inflator kits. In Europe you even get the required First Aid kit and Safety Triangle.

    We got the Slime inflator on Amazon
    We tried it on our other car to bring the tire pressure up ( didn't use the slime ) and it worked fine
    It was fairly slow and noisy but got the job done

    I think the flat tire service is only good for 50 miles from a service center. I think someone ran into that recently with a blow out north of the Grapevine
